This post is mostly for my mother. Look, ma! I completed a sewing project! Not without a few hiccups, of course, but overall, it wasn't a trainwreck. And for that, I daresay I'm quite pleased. This advent calendar is special, because Nate's mother and grandmother have ones exactly like it. Nate has fond memories of fighting with his brothers as to who's turn it was to pin on the day's ornament. We haven't had any fighting over this yet, but we'll see.

I'm on Christmas overdrive. I have been trying to do one holiday themed activity with the kids every day, and so far we've been pretty consistent. I made a new advent calendar that turned out pretty cute, so we've been pinning a new ornament on it each day. We have a candy advent as well, with 2 yummy surprises inside for every day, too. We drive around looking at christmas lights, color christmas coloring pages, and we made a gingerbread house that turned out so heinously ugly I can't post a picture of it here. And today, we made christmas cookies! It kind of feels like I'm pounding the holiday into them, but they don't seem to mind.
